KUALA NERUS, August 8 – The rejection of the Perpaduan Government in the upcoming six state elections is a clear indication that the people of this country do not want Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to be appointed as the Prime Minister. Chairman of Perikatan Nasional (PN), Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, claimed that the rejection is also a referendum of the people’s disappointment with Anwar’s leadership, which is perceived as incapable of managing the country.

“So, if we feel disappointed with the Madani government under Anwar Ibrahim, then don’t vote for Anwar and don’t vote for Barisan Nasional (BN) either, but vote for PN. There are about 9 million voters in the six states. Let’s say seven million voters decide not to support Anwar, then Anwar has received a signal that the people of Malaysia do not want him as the Prime Minister,” he said. He made these remarks while speaking at the “Program Santai Petang Bersama Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin” in Kuala Nerus on Monday.

Expanding further, Muhyiddin asserted that the rejection signals the voters’ disagreement with everything done by the Perpaduan Government. “If those who come out later do not support (the government), it shows that they do not like it, and we hope this will happen in the upcoming state elections,” he added. Meanwhile, Muhyiddin stated that he respects the decision of Bersatu Supreme Leadership Council member, Dr. Muhammad Faiz Na’aman, who resigned from the party. “That’s alright, he made the decision for his own reasons, and I don’t want to elaborate. We have no restrictions on anyone. He should understand our struggle and be patient.

Even if there are dissatisfactions, we can resolve them within the party as a family, but it’s okay, he has made his decision, and we respect his decision,” he explained. On Monday, Bersatu Supreme Leadership Council member, Dr. Muhammad Faiz Na’aman, announced his resignation, including quitting the party, effective on Monday. Muhammad Faiz claimed that the party’s initial objective had deviated, as it aimed to replace UMNO by giving more space to young and new faces, especially those with a clean background.
